COLORFUL LANGUAGE

Apparently, I shapeshift whenever I open my mouth.

Some standard, innocent-looking words for colors in spanish can be translated without much hassle. Except when you have to pronounce them yourself and suddenly the color of your skin changes in the eyes of the listener, based on your accent and pronunciation.

A non-identified person repeats the same few words in different languages, most of which are associated with specific races, skin colors, and systemic discrimination.
